After taking “Kinfolks” to the top of the charts earlier this week, Sam Hunt has announced plans to host a Southside album release party in Las Vegas ahead of the 55th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
Set for Friday, April 3 at Brooklyn Bowl, the show will feature a “full-blown” performance from Hunt as well as multiple surprise guests. Tickets for the Southside album release party go on sale beginning Friday, March 6 via Sam Hunt’s official website.
Southside, Hunt’s long-awaited sophomore album, features 12 songs, including the chart-topping “Kinfolks” and Hunt’s next radio single, “Hard To Forget.” The new single turned heads upon its release in early February. The tune includes a sampling of Webb Pierce’s 1953 chart-topper “There Stands the Glass.” According to his social media feed, Hunt filmed a music video for the song earlier this month while visiting the West Coast.
The album drops on April 3, just weeks before the launch of Hunt’s The Southside Summer Tour 2020 with special guests Kip Moore, Travis Denning, ERNEST and a DJ set by Brandi Cyrus.
The 55th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will take place Sunday, April 5 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
